One of my biggest learnings from the lockdowns is the indispensable spirit of teamwork for any organisation. The essence of working together as a team during a crisis inspires and motivates all to overcome new challenges. Another crucial factor is inculcating the ability to adapt to change. Change could be in multiple forms, ranging from change in one’s place of work to change in the technology that enables one to continue working. The last but definitely not the least important takeaway for me is the importance of technology. AstaGuru, as an auction house, has always been focussed on technology—we’ve only conducted our auctions online. The seamless possibilities that technology offered us during the lockdown reiterates our core philosophy and validates our approach.
